Café Brasserie La Bourse of Saumur!!

We came for the wonders of the Loire river and my belle France, continuing our road warrior trips and enjoying the best of the country. There have been many but I am choosing the most memorable times with my family.  We came to Saumur!

I have written on Saumur wonders before but let me give you a brief introduction to the town ok. Saumur is a sub-prefecture of the department of Maine-et-Loire, No. 49 in the Pays de la Loire region. It is particularly known for his cavalry school, castle and wines.

Saumur is located in the natural region and former division of the province of Anjou. Nearby towns are Angers ,and Chinon, and  Tours (Indre-et-Loire).(see posts). The town of Saumur has five associated towns since February 1, 1973: the city of Saumur itself in the center ,on the left bank of the Loire and the right bank of its tributary Le Thouet, Dampierre sur Loire , half of the island of Souzay which it shares with the neighboring town of Souzay-Champigny), Bagneux , Saint-Hilaire-Saint-Florent and including the village of Terrefort and the aerodrome of Saumur – Saint -Florent), and Saint-Lambert-des-Levées . Saumur is located in the heart of the Loire-Anjou-Touraine Regional Nature Park, of which it is the largest town.

And now to our fav brasserie in town, again as we do just without reservations just pop in as in your house, the real French welcome with real people, and real food. This is special for me as was the last trip I was able to take with my dear late wife Martine, afterward she passed away from cancer RIP ; memories forever, we will be back with the boys,I have to update this older nostalgic post with new text and same pictures.


The Café Brasserie La Bourse, 1 place de la Bilange,  It is an institution in Saumur with its large terrace. Depending on the affluence at lunch, we will be more or less quickly serve and when a big service is on the way, we will cut a little attention. Like all institutions, it must constantly give the desire to return, so the carte menu is renewed according to the seasons and desires of the chef. Traditional Brasserie Saumurois, at the foot of the theater and a few meters from the Loire river, with magnificent views worth it to take a walk along after eating. La Bourse has a large capacity indoors as on the large terrac outside.


It is fast but above all we were impressed by the service of the team. They are fast, efficient with a good memory and communicate with each other to provide water, bread, etc. A nice menu and value for money very interesting indeed. They exchange their role with amazing dexterity. All with a smile always shown; we shall return!
